When a businessman has no access to government favoritism, he must get your money voluntarily. He must offer you a product or service that you are willing to trade your money for. Contrast to the government. The government does not gets its money voluntarily. The only money you may say the government gets voluntarily are user fee type taxes. Gas taxes are a good example. In theory, if I own a car, I pay gas taxes when I buy gas. These taxes go to pay for the roads. There are other similar taxes. But most taxes are taken and given to other people, i.e. a wealth transfer.
